Holiday Special Title Cards

On December 11, the Sore Boozers (who I play accordion with) hosted a Holiday concert on Zoom. The show was inspired by 1970s TV specials, and featured guest artists, vintage commercials, and a tour of Toronto’s Christmas cinematic locations. The show ran for over two hours and was a hit with everyone who tuned in.

Sore Boozers guitarist Tom Griffiths stitched together dozens of files on the fly to make the show seem like a live broadcast. To help create continuity, I designed retro title cards with band member Dennis Pilon providing radio style voice overs.

Below are some examples of the title cards.

Troubadours

I play accordion with a sort-of musical softball team called the Sore Boozers. Once a week, as many as 8 of us get together and play a bunch of songs, drink a little beer, and pay little mind to the score.

Keep an ear out for us, we occasionally show up at Toronto street festivals.

Once in a while, we perform at a street festival.

Jamming in Little India

rhodes-jam

The jam band I play with, Sore Boozers, will be bringing our unique mix of Irish drinking songs, murder ballads and power pop to the street jam in Toronto’s Little India this Saturday. We plan to be there around 6 p.m.

Details: Rhodes Ave off of Gerrard on the east end of Little India is being blocked off next to Flying Pony cafe & gallery (where I had the Monkey Modern show last winter).

Get there by TTC, or use the Green P parking lot on Rhodes Ave. behind Flying Pony (access via Craven Rd.)
